Living Cui Servire on
Community Day of Service

Groton alumni and parents joined the spring Community Day of Service once again this year, spreading the school ethos of service and engagement from coast to coast.

As students and faculty dispersed throughout the area on Saturday, May 20, Groton's extended family took on projects in Boston, New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and right on campus.

Students weeded and mulched, sorted furniture, cleaned, played music, and planted tomato plants—860 of them. In the town of Groton, they did craft activities with children at Seven Hills Pediatric Center, entertained at Nashoba Park Assisted Living and RiverCourt Residences, gardened at Groton Commons, beautified a local playground, cleared trails, and reinforced books for the Kigali Reading Center in Rwanda. continued

What keeps you busy now?

My grandchildren. I babysit—I catch kids at their bus stop and stay with them until their parents come home. I also volunteer in the gift shop at Nashoba Valley Medical Center, and I've joined the Groton Women's Club. You get to know people you'd never know who... continued

You Can't Take It With You

We have all heard this old saying referring to money being of no use to us after our lifetimes. It's true, but that doesn't mean you should give no thought to what will become of your hard-earned assets. Take the time to plan your legacy, and consider including a bequest to Groton School.

Our handy Will-Planning Wizard contains more information and helps you tackle this potentially daunting task.
